I've always liked Johnny Winter especially when he played w/his Gibson Firebird. The only minor complaint I might have is that his sets can be quite a bit short.I've seen him mant times,and it is that his sets tend to be on the short side. I hope I'm wrong and if you could say either way that the show length was worth the price of admisssion.
.The last southern blues axeman I saw at the Stone Poney was Kenney Wayne Sheppard,and he did put on a good show.

Yes; that fits the scenario I outlined above, with E playing more, and J's band even playing some solo without him. All told he was only one stage for an hr or so. But it was for both of them, so no problem...

WILL Tell, I might be mistaken but I remember him being on the same bill as JIMI on that ill fated concert where Jimi walked off after about 15,0000 flash cubes went off and didn't play a note. I could be wrong but this sticks in my craw(what ever that is )and then swiftyly left the stage.
I believe it was a big peace benefit and many groups were there and for me the highlight of the show were the Rascals
They had the place as they say a rockin and a rollin.
